On Oct. 31, Kelsey-Seybold celebrated the spooky holiday with the much-anticipated opening of its Westchase Clinic. Patients were welcomed to the new clinic with complimentary refreshments and Halloween-themed giveaways in addition to sunscreen, hand sanitizer, and miniature first-aid kits. It was double the fun with Halloween and opening day festivities occurring together. “I’m happy to be here today and even happier to serve this community. I know many people have been looking forward to the opening of this clinic,” said Shannon Patilla, Clinic Administrator, Westchase Clinic.
Focused on providing care for the community
The new 22,500-square-foot clinic is located at 11284 Westheimer Road, just west of Wilcrest Drive. Westchase Clinic offers convenient care to patients living in Westchase, Briargrove, Royal Oaks, Alief, and Memorial areas.
“It’s nice to have a clinic in this busy area. It will provide access to patients who live close by,” said Shelley Li, MD, Managing Physician, Westchase Clinic.
Dr. Li has been with Kelsey-Seybold for nine years, previously working at The Vintage Clinic. She believes Westchase Clinic will benefit the community by offering “high-quality care that Kelsey-Seybold is known for, plus access to our specialties, laboratory services, and pharmacy.”
Providers ready to care for Westchase patients
“It’s a great feeling to see the clinic finally open. I’m really proud to be one of the doctors here,” said Jordan Fein, DPM, Podiatry. “I hope it opens up more access to care for the people living in this community.”
The first pediatric patient of the day and his mother, Summer Turner, are already loyal Kelsey-Seybold patients. While the Tanglewood Clinic had been their home clinic, Summer discovered that the Westchase Clinic is just two minutes away from her office building. “I trust Kelsey-Seybold, and I feel comfortable going to see a provider at any location,” Summer said.
Shannon Patilla wants to ensure that Westchase Clinic provides a welcoming environment for all patients. “We definitely want to continue our culture of excellent customer service, friendliness, and kindness to everyone. When you walk into the Spencer R. Berthelsen Main Campus, there’s a positive vibe and we want Westchase Clinic to be an extension of that here in this community,” said Shannon.
